Not only is Sarah the sweetest, kindest, most prompt, reliable, organized person you will ever meet, but her photos are AMAZING! My husband and I were lucky enough to have Sarah photograph our engagement shoot and our wedding! She made the whole process incredibly easy and smooth for us and she was always incredibly prepared and professional. She really guided us through the whole process from start to finish and we felt taken care of the entire day!

 Los Angeles Wedding at Retreat Malibu
We had an absolutely wonderful experience using Sarah as our photographer. She went above and beyond in all aspects of the process and was always there to lend a helping hand. Leading up to the wedding she answered all emails promptly and gave advice in regards to all wedding details. Sarah made us feel extremely comfortable at the engagement shoot, which made us so confident in having her photograph our wedding. All the pictures turned out beautiful and we are so lucky to have them as memories to cherish our special day. We can’t wait to use her again for other special life events!
